This Binational Lesbian Couple Could Be The First To Receive A Green Card

Parents of three children, Cathy and Catriona were running out of options last year when Cathy’s H-1B visa petition was denied (she is a citizen of Ireland).

They decided to join The DOMA Project, file a green card petition based on their marriage and assert their right to be treated equally under the law.

The Doma Projects states:

Their case has not been denied, and The DOMA Project co-founder, their attorney, Lavi Soloway, says they may be the first couple to have their green card case approved the day the Supreme Court strikes down DOMA.
